I believe I have, in every other post and I am really sorry that I sound like a broken record but it might go some way in explaining some of the upcoming blog posts.
My latest work is done around a cabochon featuring the work of Brian M. Viveros titled “Viva La Muerte” from his Southern collection.
Reading through his website he is described as a “Fetish Artist” who specializes in” erotic paintings of doe-eyed beauties with Marlboro’s dangling seductively from their lips" and that's probably the most accurate description of someone's work I have ever read
I am also a huge fan of tattoo art and I have a lot of respect for that type of art but I am deathly scared of getting a tattoo knowing that I would regret it the moment the needle touches my skin. But if I were ever going to get a tattoo, something like this painting would be what I would gravitate towards.
I have meaning to do a sexy red and black piece since I had gotten some red crystals from New York a couple of months back and this picture had the same sort of colouring as what I had in mind. the only thing was that with the background of the painting being black and my beads being all dark the whole brooch was going to end up being too dark so in order to avoid that I added a multi-colour opal cabochon that has hints of the same colours as you can see in the main cabochon; but it’s lighter so it brightens the piece up a little bit.
I have also been really into using different shapes and size of glass beads in my bead embroidery just for adding interest and breaking the monotony of just working with seed beads.
In this piece I also ventured away from my usual all-around picot edge by mixing it with some stacked, free form edging.
